PILOT MOUNTAIN — East Surry let its halftime lead slip away in a 4-2 nonconference soccer loss to Starmount on Thursday night.


Cole Casstevens scored early in the first half off a throw-in from Caleb Lowe to give the Cardinals a 1-0 lead that held up until intermission.


Starmount got the equalizer early in the second half, and then scored two more goals in a 10-minute span to go ahead 3-1. The Rams had a 4-1 lead late in the game when Austin Haymore converted a penalty kick for East with five minutes remaining.


The Cardinals, who lost to South Stokes 2-0 on Tuesday night, fell to 0-2. East hosts West Stokes on Monday.


“We are a senior-laden team, we are just not playing to our potential,” East coach Bill Hart said. “We have a lot of hustle, we are just not jelling as a team.”


East has been without captain Antonio Mata Jr. the first two matches. Mata’s father, who has been fighting cancer for more than a year, was scheduled to have brain surgery at Duke Hospital today. Coach Hart said Mata is not only a great player, but a great kid, and that the family is in the team’s thoughts and prayers.
